New Versus Sample Gowns

There's a home for every wedding dress whether it's brand new or a sample. We have brides at The Bustle saying yes to their dream gown and purchasing off-the-rack all the time! The decision is all based on personal preference. While there are pros for ordering a brand new dress, there are also many perks for getting a sample. We've outlined a few advantages to consider when shopping and trying on gowns. (:sample photos Pros for Ordering a New Dress
  • You aren't limited to styles when trying on gowns since there are new designs every season!
  • Since you're placing an order on a brand new dress, it will be in pristine condition
  • Measurements are taken to order a gown closest to your size. There's no need to worry about altering a gown two sizes too big
  • Some designers give options to customize parts of the dress when ordering. It'd be awesome to make the dress to match your personal style (:
Pros for Purchasing a Sample Gown
  • Getting a gown off-the-rack means massive savings! You'll be paying a less for a similar gown at a much higher price
  • You have a gown to begin alterations right away. This is important if you have a short timeline with a wedding coming up within the next few months
  • Aside from cleaning, alterations (hem and bustle) will be about the same as purchasing a new dress
  • Nobody will know you didn't purchase a brand new dress unless you tell them (;

Our Bride, Olivia!

Our gorgeous bride, Olivia is newly married and boy does she have some amazing photos from her big day! She wore an ivory lace gown with a low back and a customized halter neckline.  The dramatic open back is one of our favorite gown elements and we think that Olivia had the absolutely perfect gown for her! Congratulations to a beautiful bride and groom- we couldn't be happier for you! Olivia1Olivia2
